Seeking to put to an end to her arch-rivals’ dominance in the pool, Pittston Area’s Samantha Scialpi made sure the Lady Patriots would come out on top against Wyoming Area.
Scialpi won three events as Pittston Area beat the Lady Warriors, 107-77, for their first victory over WA since 2008.
For her efforts, Samantha has been named The Sunday Dispatch Pittston Area Athlete of the Week for the week Jan. 10-16.
Scialpi won the 50 Free followed by the 100 Backstroke in which she set a season-best with a time of 1:06.80. She then combined to win the 400 Free Relay with Kaylene Sutkowski, Emily Zurek and Michelle Fernando.
Posters of Samantha can be seen in Tony’s Pizza, in Pittston, and Smart Designs and Graphics in Wyoming, sponsors of the Pittston Area Athlete of the Week.
